    I am just wondering if anyone else has gone through a defacto breakup? I had to move out suddenly because my son who has Autism & my ex partner clashed. I was committed & he was not.

    I have been diagnosed with grief depression & my self esteem has taken a very hard hit. This was the first relationship after my Divorce. He said he could support me, cope with my son, help me but the exact opposite happened.

    I had to move out very quickly & now feel extremely unworthy & depression has kicked in.

    T2008, first off, I’m truly sorry you’re going through this difficult time. Breakups are hard in themselves, and when it’s intertwined with commitments, trust, and your son’s well-being, it becomes even more complex and painful. It seems from your words that you had hope and trust in the relationship, and the abrupt end has left you feeling shaken. Your dedication to your son and the steps you took for his well-being highlight a strength that’s genuinely admirable.

    It’s okay to feel hurt, especially when things don’t pan out as we hoped or expected. It’s a tough journey you’re on, but you’re not alone in it. This community is here for support, understanding, and solidarity. Please lean on us, and share when you need to. I’ve also attached an article you might find useful:
